It was a 3 concert build . !0/14/76 Shrine, 2/26/77 Swing , and by the 3rd one , at the Forum that closed the deal .

And the whole extra musical side, the general friendly, funky, goofy, and kind nature of the people, and the scene ...It just felt like home .
I should note the leg work was when a friend long time loaned my Europe 72 soon after it came out . Really hooked me (still am) on that sound . Think the opening of "Jack Straw" , how warm and rich the combo of those instruments .From that sound, which they still had, to some extent, when I first saw them, is the "Grateful Dead sound" .
All these thing kept me coming back .
